I am a Lister:
I am a lister. I am a lister because I am in no way organized and lists keep my mind a little bit more under control. I am a lister because my right side of my brain (the crazy, creative side with the million and two ideas) doesn’t always communicate with the left side of my brain (the side that reminds me of the responsibilities I have and the logical things that need to happen)… and lists serve as a little bit of a bridge between the two.
I am a lister because I’m a scrapbooker, and sharing my story and writing down my memories is so much easier in a list. I’m the first to admit that I’m great with the “taking photos” part of scrapbooking… but not so great at the “recording the memories” that goes with it. Writing down quick lists of memories and items that go with the photos keeps my memories recorded and makes my journaling so much better.
I am a lister because of 30 Days of Lists. #30lists have shown me that listing isn’t boring– it can be creative and fun and a great memory keeping tool. For two months every year, I have over 30 lists of random memories and snapshots from that period of my life. Amazing. Add in the amazing community that develops every time and an awesome and inspiring blog, and you know exactly why I look forward to every September and March.
I am a lister, and I love it! Won’t you join in this September?
